|BBC rolls with five-part 'Rock' doc
LONDON -- Ever wondered what the secret ingredients are that make rock bands truly great?
A new multi-platform BBC initiative featuring veteran rockers Jeff Beck, Roger Daltrey, Sting and Jon Bon Jovi will attempt to deconstruct what makes the perfect band.
Project will include a five-part documentary, provisionally entitled "Rock 'n' Roll," narrated by Brit music show anchor Mark Radcliffe plus online and radio content.
The docu will bow on BBC 2 this spring and aims to explain the success of some of the greatest bands of the past 50 years, including the Who, the Police, the Doors, Bon Jovi and the Foo Fighters.
It will culminate in a live studio program where music fans discuss their favorite musicians and create what the pubcaster claims is "the ultimate fantasy band."
